Make a Gift to Support UVa-Wise Academic Departments

You can play an important role in strengthening our academic departments. We need your help and dedication to improve the academic experiences of our students. Undesignated funds are used for instructional materials and supplies, technology support, sending students to conferences and filling the gaps that state funds don’t meet. You may designate your gift for scholarships or for other specific uses. You may support one or more departments and may indicate that as you complete the online giving form or when you return the gift by mail.

Thank you for considering a gift to support UVa-Wise academics!
